The Berowra Valley National Park is a protected national park that is located in northern Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. The 3,884-hectare (9,600-acre) national park is situated approximately 20 kilometres (12 mi) north-west of the Sydney central business district. Located within the Sydney Basin, the park is part of the dissected Hornsby Plateau which is dominated by Hawkesbury Sandstone and predominately covers the catchment area of Berowra Creek.

A contiguous stretch of parkland, from south to north, its southern boundary is defined by Boundary Road, Pennant Hills; its south–eastern boundary defined by the western limits of Hornsby; its north–eastern boundary defined by the Pacific Motorway; its northern boundary defined by Berowra Waters; and its western boundary defined by a series of creek and gullies as the park extends into Galston Gorge and further south.

A 25-kilometre (16 mi) stretch of the Great North Walk is located within the national park.

  • Overall Park experience is good there are enough toilets but there is no option for the children toilet plenty of playing options and swimming. Water is bit dirty but swimming will be fine. There are camping spots as well i saw few families were kayaking in the water looks fun definitely try it if you want it.
  • A truly scenic place to walk. Lovely views over Berowra Creek, rugged cliffs and virgin bush. Ancient aboriginal carvings worth a look. The Great North Walk traverses the park but it’s very steep and arduous in places so be well prepared and it’s not for the infirm or unfit.
